Highly informative and different. Beautiful birds and striking vet hospital. Could have done with less banter about the different tourist's nationalities in the introductory welcome....a bit of a time waster.

Oh my, I just loved this experience. It was simply amazing. The first shock came to me as I've arrived to the reception of the hospital, a bit late for our tour. There were about ten Emirati gentlemen sitting with their falcons on their hands, waiting for them to be accepted for a check-up. Our experience was guided by a... More

You can find dogs and cats for adoption. They have a special hospital for Falcons as well. Nice to visit.

This was an optional tour as part of the Dubai/Abu Dhabi tour from Gate 1 - I am so glad I signed up. It was so interesting learning learning about these majestic (and expensive!) birds, especially in a country where falconry has such a strong tradition and is part of the national consciousness. The staff was awesome and friendly; it... More

The history and hands on experience is amazing. The birds are amazing. With the hospital facilities the out lying bird houses there is plenty to see.

The tour was excellent, very informative, not rushed. A proper look behind the scenes of a working hospital.

The vets and nurses here specialise in looking after hunting birds. They treat thousands every year from mundane things like trimming claws to rebuilding wings. Falconry is one of the most popular sports indulged in by Emeratees as illustrated by the huge values quoted for top birds.

While having visitors to our home in Abu Dhabi we added the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital to our list of things to do. Though the facility was somewhat hard to find it was well worth the trip. Very interesting and the staff was great in answering questions and providing historical information. Best of all, actually having a Falcon perch on... More

Where else in the world can you hold a real live falcon! This place was great and great time for the kids as well. I will be back to visit again.

A lovely, unusual and educational attraction if you like birds of prey. The tour is packed with interaction and information about falcons. The tour guide is commical in his presentation of the information and extremely knowledgeable of his subject. Well worth a visit..........dont expect a 'show'.......its more a close up every day life of a falcon experience. Its different and... More
